Baic bj40 plus

The original jeep—the fatigue-green, open-top vehicle sent off lớn battle—was hardly a sight to lớn behold. Its looks were utilitarian, with headlights designed for easy replacement & an upright toàn thân that could be disassembled and rebuilt for easy transport.

It was an implement and an instant success. Like many superheroes, the original jeep has spawned a host of imitators that tóm tắt its styling, its utility, and its spirit.

1944 Willys MB jeep


As a military, agricultural, and industrial tool, early Jeeps proved as useful powering American farms as they did hauling goods to market in developing nations. As a result, the original Jeep designs were built under contract across the globe. Jeeps were built in Egypt, in South America, at Kia factories, & most notably by Tập đoàn Mitsubishi. Those were official, licensed products, however, and while their makers profited, they set out lớn copy Toledo’s finest.


Here’s a look at what other automakers have sầu done khổng lồ imitated the Jeep, if not always with great success.

FJ40 Toyota Land Cruiser with just 5,000 miles up for sale


Toyota Lvà Cruiser

Though the Lvà Cruiser has carved a name for itself over the last 70 years, it was the first true jeep clone. The Imperial Japanese Army captured a military jeep in 1941 in the Philippines và shipped it home to be studied. The country’s wartime government tasked Toyota with building a four-wheel-drive sầu, open-top vehicle, which would be known as the Toyota AK10.

The truchồng saw limited wartime use, but it phối the stage for Toyota to lớn build a truchồng under U.S. government contract after World War II. Sensing a need for military vehicles in the Korean conflict, the U.S. Army commissioned Toyota to build Willys-based military trucks. Toyota obliged, and soon offered its own, more powerful và larger version, which would eventually spawn the iconic Land Cruiser FJ40. Today’s $86,000 Lvà Cruiser sold in U.S. showrooms hardly feels lượt thích a Wrangler rival, though the 70-Series Lvà Cruisers offered in much of the world are more direct heirs lớn the original Jeep copy.

2,000,000th L& Rover Defender


Land Rover

Sensing a postwar need for a farm implement that split the difference between tractor and passenger oto, the chief designer at British automaker Rover sketched out a boxy truông xã so heavily influenced by the American military truchồng that the first prototype even road on a jeep chassis.

The earliest L& Rovers were painted in various shades of leftover military green. Their bodies were composed of an aluminum-magnesium alloy due to limited steel supply as a result of the war. The simple, boxy truông xã was intended as a stopgap lớn help put British farmers back on the road while lining Rover’s coffers with much-needed cash. Seventy years after its first Series trucks impressed farmers, Land Rover has become a definitive sầu luxury good, and the upcoming Defender replacement will nói qua little other than four wheels with the original.

Mahindra Roxor


Mahindra Roxor

The inspiration for the Mahindra Roxor is obvious, & that hasn’t made the folks at Jeep happy. The Roxor looks like a Jeep CJ-7, albeit a 4/5ths-scale one with a wonky grille. Indian conglomerate Mahindra didn’t stumble on the Jeep design by accident, however. The company has a long history of building Jeep-designed vehicles under contract for use in certain parts of the world.

The Roxor gets the CJ-7’s elongated proportions just right, and its leaf-sprung solid axles underneath look reasonably authentic. Under its hood, the Roxor is motivated by a 63-horsepower 2.5-liter turbodiesel, which isn’t enough khổng lồ make the 3,000-pound 4x4 a tire burner. But that shouldn’t matter since the Detroit-built Roxor isn’t legal for road use in the U.S., except in areas where golf carts can be driven at moderate speeds.

Jeep and Mahindra are deep in a legal dispute that hasn’t stopped this Indian CJ-7 clone from being sold in the U.S., albeit through ATV stores and not car dealers.

Ssangyong Korando


SsangYong Korando

Its name doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue, but the SsangYong Korando’s looks are awfully familiar. A complicated relationship between Jeep, the U.S. Army, & South Korea-based Ha Dong-hwan Motor Workcửa hàng saw the Jeep CJ-7 built under contract beginning in the late 1970s at a small assembly plant not far from Seoul.

Then-Jeep parent AMC in 1978 pulled out of the khuyến mãi, leading SsangYong to simply rotate the seven vertical-slot grille design & keep building CJ-7-lượt thích vehicles. A second-generation Model arrived with Jeep-esque styling—& retained the sideways grille—in the mid-1990s with Mercedes-Benz power under its hood.

BAIC BJ40


BAIC BJ40

The BAIC BJ40 has no Jeep lineage in its family tree. Instead, this Chinese copycat arrived at the 2010 Beijing Motor Show & was heralded by its maker for its rugged looks and removable top. The Jeep Wranglers sitting across the show floor made the same claims, of course.

Lax trademark enforcement in Trung Quốc hasn’t slowed the BJ40, either. The Jeep lookalike is now sold as cthua trận to lớn home page as Mexiteo.

Beijing Jeep BJ20đôi mươi, phokhổng lồ by Ronan Glon


Beijing Jeep

Let’s not forget that the BJ name (which BAIC claims stands for BeiJing) was applied lớn an official Mã Sản Phẩm called the Beijing Jeep that was the first western car built under license in Trung Quốc. The original incarnation of Beijing Jeep was a legitimate partnership between AMC và the Chinese government. The plant first built Soviet-designed military-oriented trucks with Jeep-lượt thích grilles before eventually building the boxy Cherokee for local consumption.

In 1985, China was a highly regulated market, but the Beijing Jeep played a major role in transitioning the Chinese economy. As a result, the Jeep brvà has panađậy in Đài Loan Trung Quốc, & Jeep even sells the market-exclusive Commander và Gr& Commander crossover SUVs there.
